5. LOSE WEIGHT By Meal Prepping
The easy access to highly processed foods has been directly linked to increased rates of obesity.
Studies accomplished by researchers at the National Institute of Health suggest that people on an ultra-processed diet ate an average of more than 500 calories per day and gained an average of two pounds over two weeks.
To compare, people who embraced a diet based on a minimal amount of high-processed foods lost around two pounds on average over two weeks.
From personal experience, we can confirm that getting rid of calories hidden within processed food will show on your waistline.
